2 t. honey
2 t. fresh thyme, plus extra for garnish
Dash of salt
2 ripe but firm pears, cored, unpeeled and cut in chunks (about 6 pieces per half pear)
3.5 oz. greens, such as baby arugula
4 oz. blue cheese, crumbled
1/3 crushed honey-coated almonds

In a small saucepan, combine oil, honey, thyme and salt. Add pears, while gently stirring, and bring to a rapid boil. Simmer at high heat for 1 minute. Pears should hold their shape and not be mushy.
